For Immediate Release

Columbus, GA – The Muscogee County School District’s CTAE (Career Technical and Agricultural Education) Program in partnership with our School Counseling Services is pleased to announce the inaugural “I Love My Future” Week on February 14 – 17, 2022.

The event will consist of guest speakers, career fairs, and virtual field trips. It will also host live and virtual demonstrations, college fairs and job shadowing.

“The CTAE Department is excited to be a leader in launching 'I Love My Future' this year and plan for it to grow into an annual event for the district”, states Victoria Thomas, Director of the CTAE Program. “Setting time aside for students to imagine and plan for a bright future helps us fulfill the mission of equipping students to reach their unlimited potential”.

Schools throughout the District will be participating during the week’s events. The Business community, Stakeholders and Partners in education are all welcome to this event. Mrs. Thomas added, “We hope that the business community and other stakeholders support our efforts by offering to share their experiences with students.”

MCSD School Counselors recognize career education begins in kindergarten and is exemplified by students who are knowledgeable about options and are prepared to enroll and succeed in any postsecondary experience without the need for remediation (ASCA).

Dr. Trikella Nelson, Director of Counseling and School Social Work Services states, “As School Counselors, we are so excited to have new partners in assisting with our students' career exploration. For years, we’ve required Career Day events in our schools. It is exciting to see the collaboration with the CTAE department that has led to the development of ‘I Love My Future Week’, which is devoted to providing more opportunities and time for our students to explore their future plans.”
